The Cape San Blas Inn sits with its back to St. Joe Bay (a wonderful view from the dining area, one downstairs room, and the upstairs Turtle Suite) and its front about 275 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. It can be used as a place of departure for fishing or kayaking tours of the Gulf or bay, or simply as a haven. The innkeeper and maid are gracious, and the breakfasts are excellent (there is a daily special such as eggs benedict, shrimp quiche, or country biscuits and sausage, but they will prepare whatever you want if the special doesn't please you) and can be taken in the common area overlooking the bay or in your room. The rooms are clean and are nice without being pretentious (if one doesn't consider the huge-screen TV and screened-in porch in the suite, which my wife and I would like to try when we feel flush). Hall noise is a slight problem, as the downstairs rooms open onto either the entryway or the dining area, and voices seem to boom through the doors. Upstairs, I've read that the room next to where the food preparation is done should be avoided if one likes to sleep in, as well. Otherwise, I would recommend this bread and breakfast with no reservations.
